Photos from Joanie Lindstrom

Joanie has been on The Late Riser's Club on WMBR for 20 years now but she has been on the scene longer than that. Here are some photos from her early club days. Like a lot of early photos of Boston punk these are from a Kodak 110 Instamatic.

Talented singer/songwriter/guitarist not to mention Joanie's brother.
The first picture is backstage at the Boston Garden when the New Models opened for The Cars. Then there are pictures of Casey when some Narcissus assholes tried to take the beers he was bringing to Joanie's party and cut him with a bottle. He went to the emergency room then to the party!
